Forum: etree Subject: HELP: File metadata XML invalid. Waiting for user to correct.


Hey folks!

Having a problem with my first upload, and I need some help. I packed up everything the way it was required according to etree standards, put in the flac fingerprint file, an MD5 checksum, and info.txt file. I uploaded and then submitted and filled out the metadata for the files. Everything was looking good until I got this error:

ia12116.archive.org [3964]: File metadata XML invalid. Waiting for user to correct.

I read up on some of the FAQ's and saw that non-standard characters were the cause of such an error, but as far as I can tell, I have only standard characters. So, I'm confused. This is a sweet matrix recording of John Brown's Body at the Warfield in SF last January, and I can't wait to get it loaded, but I'm afraid I'm stuck at the moment. Any help would be much appreciated.

Not sure if this link will help, but it's the link to my details page:

Thanks in advance!

Same was with my netlabel item GRHK_Records but after a few days it changed to:
"The item you are trying to edit does not have metadata or the metadata is not parseable.
It will need to be rebuilt or fixed first."
Check it here:
